Eiffel Tower bomb threat

TOURISTS were allowed back inside the Eiffel Tower after it was briefly evacuated following a bomb threat yesterday.

It was the second alert in two weeks at the Paris monument.

The telephoned threats have come as France is on alert for possible terror attacks on crowded targets.

Police closed down the immediate surroundings of the tower and blocked off traffic.
